    Rendering Artifacts in Perspective Full Overview

    Kbird1, This what Tech Support said specifically: "It appears that the size of your terrain perimeter is causing this issue. The camera has to back way out to capture it all. When I delete the terrain, the issue goes away. Perhaps if it is not crucial to your plan you could draw a smaller terrain perimeter for the camera view purposes." Question: What is meant by the "clipping distance" and where is this set in the program? I assume this relates to the terrain size? I cannot find where the default is set for this parameter in Architectural 2015. Thanks, Buzzsaw827 Home Designer Architectural 2015 Windows 7 Pro 64 bit

    Rendering Artifacts in Perspective Full Overview

    Thank you for the comments and suggestions. My video card is fine. It is an ATI Radeon HD 7800 series with 2 GB memory and the latest firmware. The roof was auto-built by HD although I'm sure it could use some tweaking. The main issue according to Tech Support was the size of the Terrain, which was too large. I deleted the existing terrain and then rebuilt it as a smaller size. The rendering artifacts disappeared immediately and entirely.

  3. I'm getting rendering artifacts in Perspective Full Overview while panning the camera. I didn't see this issue just a few days ago. Also, I can open a days-older version of my plan and these artifacts don't appear while panning. The artifacts appear, disappear and change with pan and angle of the camera, kind of like the daylight lighting effects. I thought perhaps I had messed up the lighting effects but they are still set to default and are the same as the earler plan that doesn't exhibit this issue. I don't know if I accidentally messed up a setting in the program or if I've run across a program bug. (I've also submitted this question to the Technical Support Center but due to the holidays I thought I might get a quicker answer here.) Attached are three JPG captures in Perspective view of the external walls --- front, back and a closeup. In the closeup you can see the Chief Wrap Residentail House Wrap showing through the wall. In other shots you can see what appears to be plywood showing through. Does anyone have any idea what may be causing this issue? BTW, my HD program is up to date.

    Backsplash above cooktop & below hood

    Thank you solver & katalyst777. I had not yet discovered the Custom Backsplash tool ... very handy! That is what I used. I've found that the Soffit tool also solves a variety of problems. I will also play with the Shapes. Thanks, Buzzsaw827

    Backsplash above cooktop & below hood

    I would like to create a tile or stone backsplash covering the wall area above the kitchen cooktop and below the hood. Please see the attached JPG picture of this kitchen area. The backsplash will be a different material and larger of course than the backsplash used above the countertops and below the wall cabinets. I will use a tile/stone from a Manuafacturer Catalog in the program library. I haven't figured out how to apply the material to just this one small section of wall. The program tends to want to apply the material to the entire kitchen wall. I have looked for a solution in the self help Q&A section but can't seem to find the answer. Your help is appreciated.
